“Local Stickerbook” is an independent magazine exhibiting works of contemporary Ukrainian artists. For each edition, around twenty artists are selected to represent their creations through the sticker format. The project was launched in February, 2021 as an initiative of Kyiv-based artists and curators. Since that time, the team successfully hosted several multi-format events uniting various local musicians, artists and enthusiasts to explore metamodernistic ideas and approaches. 

The Local Stickerbook team also provides artists and their families with financial aid. The team intends to create a special financial support foundation giving a part of the profits and donations to the Ukrainian artists in need. Together we make a difference!

item Magazin #5 – kursiv. HTW Berlin, Department of Design and Culture.

Tags: , , , , , , ,

item (Independent platform for the Transfer of Educational impulses via a student Magazine) is the student magazine of the Department of Design and Culture at HTW Berlin. 

item #5 steht unter dem Titel kursiv und behandelt Veränderung als fließenden Prozess. Kursiv (lat.), das bedeutet so viel wie fließend, immer weiterlaufend, aber auch eilend. Ist das nicht eine ziemlich treffende Repräsentation unserer heutigen Zeit? Der digitale Wandel eilt so schnell voran und verändert unser Leben stetig. Doch muss das unbedingt bedeuten, dass das analoge Handwerk ausstirbt? Oder kann Digitales und Analoges miteinander vereint werden und zusammenfließen? Des Weiteren befassen wir uns mit Heimat und Identität. Was hat unsere Kultur mit unserer Arbeit zu tun? Wie identifizieren wir uns mit verschiedenen Kulturen und wie beeinflussen uns diese? Was bedeutet eigentlich Heimat? Was treibt uns an und was inspiriert uns?

In item #5 fokussieren wir uns auf junge Kreativschaffende aus Berlin und haben viele spannende Beiträge zusammengestellt. Du kannst dich unter anderem auf Interviews mit Hannah Mühi, Andrej Dúbravský, Berfin Karakurt, Nikolas Iturralde und dem Kreativ-Duo Lisa Ertel und Jannis Zell freuen. Außerdem gibt es individuelle Texte von dem Künstler Angst Yok, den Poetryslamerinnen Hala und Lucia Lucia, der Rockband Westhafen und dem Typedesigner Hubert Jocham. Zusätzlich stellen wir Arbeiten von 23 Studierenden des Fachbereichs Gestaltung und Kultur vor und ermöglichen so Einblicke in die verschiedenen Studiengänge und die Arbeiten, die an der HTW entstanden sind.

Odious Rot Issue 3 Troubled Waters. Odious Rot

Posted in Artist magazine, design, fashion, lifestyle, magazines, writing on October 9th, 2023
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Coming from the fire-lit warmth of OR2 Weapons & Self Protection, Odious Rot retreat to the coolness of underground caves, tidal pools and reservoir tanks. OR3 Troubled Waters is a tribute to the damp, the dank and the wet—a titanium trove dredged up from the deep.

Odious Rot is a community-focused magazine fossilising independent creatives in print. Heavily informed by world-building, each yearly issue exists as a self-contained system, within which contributors share commentary on their own work.

Odious Rot welcomes all modes of design practice, performance, poetry, prose and cultural observation in response to a chosen theme. Devoid of big brand advertising, we prioritise the practitioner, holding space for the unsung talent we feel is owed more light. A printed relic of this moment, now.

Supplement 07: Joar Nango: Uncle Doug’s Fishing Shack

Fillip is pleased to announce the release of Uncle Doug’s Fishing Shack, with contributions by Joar Nango, Ryan Gorrie, Timothy O’Rourke, David Thomas, Courtney R. Thompson, and Jenifer Papararo.

Supplement 7 traces Joar Nango’s artistic process, mapping the development of his temporary installation and sculpture Uncle Doug’s Fishing Shack presented at Plug In ICA (Winnipeg) in 2019 as part of Stages. The publication features an interview between Nango and Indigenous architect David Thomas about an abandoned military barracks’ transformation into Canada’s largest urban reserve. It also includes a short essay by Indigenous architect Ryan Gorrie, in which he examines Circle of Life Thunderbird House in Winnipeg, designed by renowned Indigenous architect Douglas Cardinal. These texts are paired with critical writings by architecture lecturer Timothy O’Rourke and architecture scholar Courtney R. Thompson, who detail accounts of governmental suppression of Indigenous architectural and artistic ingenuity in both Australia and Canada.

TEXTURE MAGAZINE ISSUE #2. Christian Jones, Alex Greenwood, Sophie Parke (Eds.). Texture Magazine

Posted in architecture, Artist magazine, distribution, magazines, music, writing on March 8th, 2023
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Texture Magazine Issue #2 is about proximity, growth, and the art of feeling as much as understanding – a fractallised approach to what sound can mean now.

From a radical relistening of silence to the intellectual demise of music altogether, the words contained within are to be held, shared, caressed and torn asunder. Also featured is writing on the sociopolitics of the nightlife industry, the place-making of UK Drill, and the meaning of gatherings in northern Sweden through the eyes of Pliny the Elder. Among many others, of course.
